EOS innovates the lip balm market

For decades, lip balm meant Chapstick. It was a name synonymous with lip balm, and it was what customers looked for when they went shopping for lip balm. The little cylindrical tube in the original or wild cherry. Seven years ago, round orbs of lip gloss hit the market and took over. Slowly, they took over the shelves of major stores, like Well,  Walgreens and Target. With wild flavors, like honeydew and grapefruit, it is no wonder why EOS lip balm quickly took over s stagnate market.

The lip balm products from Evolution of Smooth (EOS) popped up all over Facebook and Fashion magazines, in the hands of celebs like Kim Kardashian, and become the runner up lip balm to Burt’s Bees. Currently according to evolutionofsmooth.ca, over 1 million units of this lip balm are sold per week and the numbers are increasing. There is a demand for natural and organic products from customers, and that is EOS specialty. The profits in this category are expected to increase to 2 billion by 2020.

Sanjiv Mehra is a co-founder and managing partner. Mehra spent most of their career in pre-packaged consumer goods, like PepsiCo and Unilever, and he joined forces with Jonathan Teller and Craig Dubitsky to “shake up the beauty aisle.” They felt like many of the products on the market were exactly like Chapstick and looked like them too. They wanted to create an innovative lip balm for women and started to rethink it from the ground up. They wanted a lip balm to engage as many of the five senses, which meant touch, smell, taste, and sight.

EOS created innovations in the market and continue to innovate the lip balm market as they change their product line to meet their customer’s wants. They found a market that needed to change. Visit evolutionofsmooth.ca to view all the products EOS has to offer.

Fabletics Is A Game Changer

Fabletics is an innovative breath of fresh air in a highly competitive industry. Retail is dominated by several powerful corporations who set the tone for how business is done and how consumers receive the product. Online shopping created an entirely new avenue for consumers to browse and gain access to various types of merchandise. Fabletics was yet another take on the relationship between suppliers and those who express demand.

Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler are two young businessmen who looked to bring their new ideas to the fashion industry. Both of these men had success with online marketing and relished the opportunity of applying their knowledge to a new arena. JustFab was there original creation and supplied women’s apparel online. The company offers a monthly membership for customers to access the available goods at a discounted price. The business model was highly successful. Fabletics would soon follow as a spinoff to the base concept.

Fabletics promotes a line of athletic wear for women. Ressler and Goldenberg enlisted the help of movie star actress Kate Hudson. Kate Hudson is the face and co-founder of the new company which has grown to international levels. Fabletics offers merchandise worldwide and is currently in the process of opening retail stores in key locations.

Fabletics is making an impact on how other major retailers do online business. Its retail store locations will allow customers to have a physical shopping experience along with maintaining their membership status with the company.

Goldenberg and his team believes that the membership personalizes the shopping experience for the consumer. This is much different from other online retailers such as Amazon.com. There are some online outlets that charge a yearly membership fee in order for it’s customers to access discounted items. Executives at Fabletics have found that these websites do not have a high rate of return business despite a large volume of browsers. Fabletics is looking to create brand loyalty with its clients. Having repeat customers is what sets this business model apart from the traditional retailers within the industry.

Fabletics grew into a 250 million dollar organization in the first three years. Its unique business model was able to turn an industry negative known as show rooming into a positive. Showrooming is when people browse for items and then choose to buy them somewhere else. Having customers who walk into the Fabletics retail stores as members increases the chances that they will get involved in a buying experience as opposed to looking and not spending.

George Soros Undeterred by Surprise Election Results

George Soros has not allowed the surprise election of Donald Trump derail his long-time support of progressive politics. George Soros, the 86-year old Hungarian-American billionaire investor, philanthropist, political activist and author committed millions of dollars to Hillary Clinton’s ultimately unsuccessful bid for the White House. However, another $2 million commitment contributed to the defeat of incumbent Maricopa County sheriff, Joe Apria, whose anti-immigrant law enforcement brought him into Soros’ crosshairs.

Shortly after the election, Soros and other liberal fundraisers, along with House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairman Keith Ellison met at conference sponsored by the Democracy Alliance donor club (known as the DA) to assess the recent political losses and develop strategies to thwart Trump’s conservative policies and obtain better progressive results at the polls in future election cycles.

While much focus has been given to the presidential results and the defense of Obama’s national legacy including the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), anti-nuclear proliferation under the Iran Agreement and climate change policy, sessions at the conference also focused on winning back governorships and statehouses across the country, where the Republican party has built a significant majority. This majority will first be challenged in 2017 state elections and the next Congressional cycle in 2018.

While much of the 2016 strategy focused on mobilizing the coalition that brought Obama two presidential terms, many liberal leaders have expressed the need to better appeal to the working-class voters in unexpected swing states captured by the Trump’s simplistic but ultimately effective populist message. While evolving US demographics ultimately will to bend the political calculus toward progressive causes, the liberal establishment is focusing near term on Trump’s first 100 days and the lead up to the next Congressional election cycle.

George Soros’ viewpoint on Trump is influenced by his personal experience of the Holocaust and of Soviet Communist rule. While not directly comparing Trump’s rise to the rise of fascism in Europe in the 1930s, but cognizant of growing European xenophobia and the Brexit vote, the need to be aware of authoritarian strains in US society and their effect on American politics cannot be denied. At George Soros request, in the wake of the unexpected presidential results, this topic was added to the agenda of the DA conference.

Given his strong track record of supporting progressive causes and the jarring developments in the US political landscape, it is all but certain that Soros will maintain if not increase his efforts to maintain an open society in America.
